1 HOME ENERGY CONSERVATION ACT: TRAFFORD COUNCIL 2015/16 17/18 ACTION DETAILS TIMING 1. LOCAL ENERGY EFFICIENCY AMBITIONS AND PRIORITIES Ambitions Trafford Council has developed the following strategies which contribute to home energy conservation:- The Sustainable Trafford Strategy ( ) aims to address carbon emissions in Trafford borough, including from the domestic housing sector. The developing Trafford Housing Strategy includes a priority to improve the energy efficiency of existing properties. Trafford, as a member of the Greater Manchester Combined Authority, is a signatory to Climate Local, the successor to the Nottingham Declaration on Climate Change. Trafford Council is also a signatory to a number of Greater Manchester level strategies and initiatives, which aim to improve home energy conservation. The GM Climate Change Strategy aims to reduce carbon emissions by 48% across Greater Manchester by 2020 based on 1990 levels. The Greater Manchester Green Deal (GD) and ECO Model implemented from May and aims to deliver Green Deal and ECO to 5,000 homes across GM by financial year end The GM Retrofit Strategy sets a long term target for 90% of housing stock in Greater Manchester, to be at Energy Performance Certificate (EPC) rating B, and 17 kg/co2 per m2 by The remaining 10% of homes will need to achieve a minimum of EPC C by Performance and Achievements Trafford has worked to improve the energy efficiency of homes across the borough in order to enhance the lives of residents. The table below comprises data up to September, and includes installations under the Toasty Trafford scheme which was the precursor to the GM Green Deal offer branded Little Bill. Obligation Carbon Saving Target (CSO) Carbon Savings Community (CSCO) Affordable Warmth (HHCRO) Total number of ECO measures delivered 4 Valid percentage of ECO measures delivered 5 Households with at least one usual resident 1,2 ECO measures per 1,000 households

2 In 2011 the GM Combined Authority stated their support for the proposed Green Deal (GD) business case and for a GD programme for GM to be delivered from. In 2011/12 all authorities in GM provided support for the establishment of the Greater Manchester Energy Advice service (GMEAS). The GMEAS was established to provide free energy advice and information, access to funding for energy efficiency improvements and help and advice for residents in fuel poverty. This service is scheduled to close on 31 st march 2015 following a Greater Manchester review of all of its non statutory functions. In GM received 6.1m of funding from DECC to deliver Green Deal Communities. 139 measures have been installed in 84 Trafford households under the GM Green Deal Little Bill offer, including the Green Deal Communities target areas. By December, 857 solar PV systems had been installed in domestic properties across Trafford. For the past two winters, Trafford has run a Warm and Healthy Trafford programme, funded by the Council in the absence of funding from central government. The scheme aims to deliver health interventions including insulation funded by ECO. Take-up of the scheme has been light, due to generally mild winter weather in both years. In 2012, Trafford borough had cut its carbon dioxide emissions by 25.4% against the 1990 baseline. Priorities In 2012, Trafford households emitted 463 kilotonnes of CO2, an improvement of 77 kilotonnes over the 540 kilotonnes of CO2 emitted in 2010, and had 16.6% of households being classed as fuel poor, 2% more than the England rate mean of 14.6%, an improvement on the 18.5% of households being classed as fuel poor in Trafford s households are amongst the highest emitters of carbon in Greater Manchester per capita. Domestic Buildings account for 42% of the direct CO 2 emissions from Trafford borough. Fuel poverty and cold homes are a drain on both the local economy and health budgets and have an adverse impact on the health and wellbeing of affected households. 2

3 2. MEASURES WE ARE TAKING TO RESULT IN SIGNIFICANT ENERGY EFFICIENCY IMPROVEMENTS OF OUR RESIDENTIAL ACCOMODATION 2.1 Green Deal and ECO Trafford Council is a participant in a Greater Manchester Green Deal programme branded Little Bill. The Association of Greater Manchester Authorities (AGMA) procured three GD delivery partners in January. GM GD programme aims to - 17 Catalyse over 100m of activity across the whole supply chain; Generate 36m of GVA ; Support 1,000 jobs across the supply chain, whilst opening up opportunities for new GM apprenticeship and training activities; onwards Assist 5,000 households make their homes warmer, with at least 2,000 of these households being supported out of fuel poverty; and Save approximately 3m in NHS costs in addressing fuel poverty. onwards The programme 14 until Jan 15 has installed 3125 measures within 2487 homes across GM. Year Total measures Annual carbon saving (tco2) Annual carbon saving (ktco2) Annual financial savings on fuel bills May - Jan ,405 Based on EST savings GM is a GD Skills Exemplar project with GD Skills Alliance focusing on inclusion of SMEs in supply chain and ensuring that GM SMEs are Green Deal ready early in the market. The anticipated performance of this scheme in Trafford will reflect the success of the national Green Deal scheme. To date, take-up of the national scheme has been very slow, and this is also reflected in local take-up in Trafford. 2.2 Fuel Poverty In 2012, 16.6% of Trafford households were classed as being fuel poor. Mitigation measures to tackle this are as follows:- 2013/ /16 Trafford Council has every year delivered a Warm and Healthy Trafford winter health interventions programme which includes energy efficiency measures in a wide range of interventions delivered by multiple agencies. 3

4 The three wards targeted by Trafford s Green Deal Communities programme Stretford, Gorsehill and Clifford are in the bottom 15% by income nationally according the Indices of Multiple Deprivation. Trafford has been a signatory to Greater Manchester level strategic initiatives on fuel poverty:- GM had established a GM Fuel Poverty Group under the Low Carbon Hub to encourage partnership including representatives from the health sector working across the region to reduce the impact of fuel poverty. An initial GM fuel poverty strategy is also available: 2013/ /16 All of the above are on hold until a decision is made on future co-ordinated GM fuel poverty initiatives in light of the GM Energy Advice Service closing. 2.3 Renewable Energy Trafford (Dec ) shows 857 Installations of solar PV in domestic properties. This is fewer than the national average of 1,441 Installations per local authority area. Trafford is committed to building renewable energy capacity in the borough through a number of programmes: Participation in the GM District Heat Network programme. Trafford has submitted a bid to DECC to develop heat networks in and around Trafford Park, which if successful could have a major impact on Greater Manchester s carbon dioxide emissions. Participation in the AGMA Wind Power Feasibility Study, which will shortly produce a Phase 1 list of potential sites for wind power across Trafford. Trafford s Core Strategy Planning Policy L5 (Climate Change) encourages major new development to achieve higher carbon emissions reduction targets where access to local low-carbon energy sources is available. 2.4 Minimum standards in the private rented sector Trafford Council will encourage and support the Private Rented Sector to make energy efficiency improvements to the housing stock by: o Working with the National Landlords Association to provide energy efficiency support to local landlord forums where appropriate; o Communicating forthcoming energy efficiency legislation changes to local lettings agencies and estate agents;

5 2.5 Social Housing o Supporting the GM Private landlords accreditation scheme; o Working with partners to encourage referrals to our local energy efficiency schemes; o Providing advice to landlords on minimum energy efficiency standards and their responsibilities on the Council website; o Environmental Health officers will continue to take action and enforce against landlords who do not meet the HHSRS minimum standards within their properties. There are five main housing associations in Trafford, who collectively own nearly 90% of the social rented stock. The Council and housing association partners work together through the Trafford Strategic Housing Partnership (SHP). Trafford Council will continue to work closely with SHP members to ensure that best practice is shared on reducing fuel poverty and energy efficiency. We will work with Social Housing Providers within the target areas identified for the Green Deal Communities Project to ensure their stock is included wherever possible MEASURES WE PROPOSE TO COST EFFECTIVELY DELIVER ENERGY EFFICIENCY IMPROVEMENTS IN RESIDENTIAL ACCOMODATION BY USING AREA BASED / STREET BY STREET ROLL OUT 3.1 Greater Manchester ECO 2013 / GD and ECO 3.2 Data Management and Targeting During GM procured a panel of partners to deliver ECO opportunities to resident via the GMEA. This was delivered in Trafford under the Toasty Trafford brand. GMEA have procured a panel of delivery partners to deliver Green Deal and ECO. The Little Bill scheme commenced in. The Greater Manchester Green Deal offer Little Bill is available across Trafford borough to all residents. However, the Eco Toasty offer, and this year the Green Deal Communities offer, which is significantly better than the standard offer, has been targeted at three areas Stretford, Gorsehill and Clifford, under the following criteria: Onwards 5

6 Housing stock which is predominantly of solid wall construction, which would benefit from internal or external thermal cladding A relatively high incidence of fuel poverty 4. TIME FRAME DELIVERY AND NATIONAL AND LOCAL PARTNERS Delivery and Partners Trafford Council s delivery and strategic partners are as follows: Greater Manchester Low Carbon Hub Green Deal Finance Providers Greater Manchester Energy Advice Service (ceasing 31 March 2015). Social housing providers Private sector landlords NHS Voluntary and community sector Local supplier and installers Local universities and colleges 2013 onwards 6
